HIST 040: Comparative Women's History: Welcome

A guide for students in HIST040 designed to help with final paper assignments


This subject guide was created to assist you with your research. The information here is intended to support you as you work on your final paper which will be based on independent research. These resources are most clearly aligned with this field but because of the interdisciplinary nature of women's and gender studies I suggest that you also check other general databases in fields that may intersect with your research (for example, African American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, History, or LGBTQIA+ Studies). There are subject guides available for these fields as well, and you can find links to those to the left of this box.

What's in this guide

In this guide you will discover resources at Yale and other institutions that support women's and gender studies. These include:

  • Finding books (both print & electronic)
  • Finding journal articles
  • Finding primary source materials (in the Yale collections, electronic collections and other special collections)

You will also find useful tips for organizing your research.
